Sue's strength was tested again on February 14, 2015, when her Son was in a fatal car accident. At that time, Sue was in the hospital in one town and her Son was transported to a hospital in a different town. Sue fought hard to be released so she could see her Son before he passed. Sadly he passed away on 2/19/15 from injuries sustained in the accident.
Now, as I type this, Sue is in the ER receiving fluids because she is sick. Yet somehow her messages still make me smile. Odd right? She is the one fighting this, yet she is the one who makes me feel better.
In a recent conversation a couple of weeks ago, Sue told me that she was seeing an End of Life Doctor as there was really nothing further that could be done. They do have 3 possible trial options, that may allow her some time but no guarantees. Sue stated that her cancer has spread to her neck, arms, hands and possibly jaw. It has gotten so bad that she broke her leg just hitting on the car door, something that many of us have done and only resulted in a bruise. She can't pick up her 2 year old granddaughter because she may break her arms. Can you imagine not being able to pick up your child/grandchild because you may break your own arms? I can't.
So the reason for this fundraiser. Sue mentioned that she would love to be able to take Ella, her Granddaughter, to Disney. She just wants to see her little face light up and experience that with her before she gets too sick to enjoy it. I want to try to do this for her but I need your help. I have contacted a travel agent for Disney and received pricing. It looks like anywhere from $4300 to $6000 for inclusive packages. This doesn't include airfare. In addition to this Gofundme, I am also going to hold some online auctions through Facebook. They will be posted on my Facebook page and once I get the first one set up, I will try to post a link here in case anyone wants to participate.
Please help me help Sue get her, Ella and her Family to Disney while Sue can still enjoy it. If you can't donate, then please share this.
Thank you in advance for your love and support.
